  • Congratulations on a fantastic season

    Congratulations on a fantastic seasonDear Editor,

  • Valor does exist

    Valor does existDear Editor,While I was not really surprised at Mr. Ragsdale’s attack on my opinion that more than two defenders of freedom in the past five years should merit the Congressional Medal of Honor, I see no reason to engage in a battle of wits with him. It is not in my nature to fight an unarmed man.But what does confuse me is why the ditto-heads are so quick to attack differing opinions, even as brave men and women are dying to give us all the freedom to do exactly that.

  • Local resources abound for tech

    Local resources abound for techDear Editor,We appreciate the profile of Caldera Pharmaceuticals in the Nov. 15 edition of the Monitor. We have received significant support from community leaders who are committed to diversifying our economy. The strong leadership shown by Rep. Udall, Sen. Domenici and Sen. Bingaman was noted in the article.In addition, we would like to point out the many resources that are available locally for growing technology businesses; each of these has played a role in our success.

  • Udall is tough enough for Senate

    Udall is tough enough for SenateDear Editor,I spent 1,200 hours working on Tom Udall’s 1998 first campaign for Congress, and I, like many others in this district, voted to elect Udall because of his integrity, his sense of the environment and of justice, and his outstanding work during eight years as attorney general.I didn’t expect him to take orders from whatever inflamed portion of the public has something to say on any national scale, but, rather, to exercise his carefully considered judgment on issues and on specific votes.

  • Thanksgiving for all faiths

    Thanksgiving for all faithsDear Editor,I am astonished by the deftness with which, using only a truncated historical example and a poor sports analogy, Pastor Gene Linzey was able to take Thanksgiving away from the non-Judeo-Christian citizens of this country (23 percent, according to most recent census data) in this past Friday’s “Bible Answers” column.With nary an answer from the Bible in sight, Linzey tells us that “anyone can celebrate Thanksgiving Day,” but “only those who worship and honor the Living God can tru

  • We must honor those who serve

    Dear Editor,

    John Pawlak has once again decided the best entre on the menu was his own foot. In his Nov. 13 letter, our prolific editorial campaigner informs us that the Congressional Medal of Honor is not being awarded often enough for war publicity, noting that only two of the most recent eight awards have been for service in Iraq or Afghanistan.

  • Veterans need real support

    Dear Editor,

  • Stop the Bypass Road

    Stop the Bypass Road

    Dear Editor,

    A new road is poised to open (see photo on p. 3 of Nov. 8 Los Alamos Monitor). From the top of West Road (near where it used to intersect State Road 4) you will be able to travel west, directly to the ski hill, bypassing LANL’s western guard station. DOE built this highway through TA-62, along a former road that accessed a large water tank.

  • Our options are being taken away

    Dear Editor,

    The kooks seem to be winning. Who is paying attention to what is going on around us?

    Prairie dogs have assumed an elevated status. This furry little rodent, carrier of the Black Plague virus, has managed to delay the construction of the Rail Runner track into Santa Fe and is increasing the cost of the project.

  • Are there no heroes?

    Dear Editor,

    This week, President Bush presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to eight people in recognition to their contributions in the arts, sciences and the pursuit of freedom. This award is the highest civilian award given by the White House.
